New River Community College's Concert Series presents the Atlanta Rhythm Section in concert on Saturday, April 19, 2024 inside 117 Edwards Hall located on the New River Community College campus in Dublin, VA.

The Atlanta Rhythm Section (ARS) has been part of the Southern Rock scene for over 50 years after forming in 1970 after working on a Roy Orbison recording session. Keyboardist Dean Daughtry and drummer Robert Nix had been members of Orbison's backing group, the Candymen, and Daughtry and guitarist J.R. Cobb had been members of the Top 40 hitmakers Classics IV.

They have put out 15 albums of excellent original material, and consistently put on entertaining live shows-both of which helped establish a broad if not huge fan base. Their biggest hits include "So Into You", "Champagne Jam", "Imaginary Lover", "Homesick", and "Spooky". But there’s so much more.

With 15 albums of outstanding songwriting and performances, The Atlanta Rhythm Section represents the good things the phrase "classic rock" implies.


General admission tickets are $32.00 and reserved seats are $42.00 in advance. Day of the show tickets are $3.00 more provided tickets are left.

To purchase tickets online, visit: or tickets can be purchased in-person at the NRCC Business Office located at 23 Godbey Hall. Note: Cash and checks only for in-person sales.

Doors open at 6:30 PM and the music starts at 7:30 PM.

New River Community College is located in a region rich in music that has been passed down through generations. Traditional music is as much source of pride for many area residents as it is a family legacy. Talented musicians - both instrumentally and vocally, crafters of musical instruments and those with a deep appreciation of the music gather monthly at the college for its jamborees.

Held since 1991 on the second Saturday of each month between October and April, the free music events have become a gathering of like-minded people who are interested in enjoying, preserving and perpetuating the great old-time and bluegrass music of their ancestors.

Twice a year, the club hosts paid concerts that bring bluegrass and country greats like Rhonda Vincent, Doyle Lawson, Dailey and Vincent, Gene Watson and Marty Stuart to the college. Many of these performers have made multiple appearances and drawn record-breaking crowds.

Ralph Stanley, Olen Gardner, Big Country Bluegrass, John Viers, Whitetop Mountain, The Adam Larkey Band and many others have also performed here and entertained thousands of local music fans.

Note: The club was originally named the New River Community College Fiddle, Banjo & Dance Club, but was changed to better reflect what the club brings to the community and include concerts outside the bluegrass and old time genres.


New River Community College's Dublin, VA campus is located at 5251 College Drive in Dublin, VA.
